**An Evening with Robert Hunter**

Thanks to Robert Hunter for all the great lyrics and for allowing taping and sharing. There's a fitting nod to Bob Weir when Robert Hunter forgets the words to a verse during Jack Straw, a song he wrote with Bob Weir and Robert extends a heartfelt thanks to Jerry Garcia.

Subject: Great recording Gal, this one is my favorite!
I have listened to all the recordings from Rob Hunter's brief 2013 Fall Tour and this recording is easily my favorite. It's the one I keep coming back to, Roberts performance is exemplary and the recording sounds like you are right there with him.

Congratulations Lady, well done and thank you so much for sharing. Hopefully we'll get more from Robert Hunter in the Spring, this ones a keeper regardless!

Subject: A Great Pull ! & Thanks for Sharing
A beautiful, bright and clear recording that compliments Hunter's voice. Thank you so much for the record of this time in RH's history and this wonderful performance which sums a good deal of his best known and loved work.
You gave us the opportunity to hear this show which was not within our reach to attend.
Very grateful !

Subject: Thanks!
Only listened to a few seconds but the recording sounds clear and Robert's voice is soooo good during Box. Great night, even if he seemed kinda miffed at those hootin' during Stella Blue. Say what you want about his guitar playing, but I dig the way he sings. And let's not forget that without him, there is no GD, or at least not the GD we know.

Thanks for putting this one up just a day after the show too!!!

EDIT: GREAT SOUND. Thank you so much! But I have to stick to the "miffed" explanation during Stella Blue. And yeah I know he said he had some tech issues, but he pauses for a moment after each Hoot during the tender parts ... then continues to play. The youtube video suggests those Hollers maybe didn't "miff" him, but they caught him off-guard, or something. Use your own word.

Subject: Guitar problems
Terrific show -- made me run right out and get tickets for Friday's Keswick show.

Hunter was not acting miffed a the crowd during Stella Blue. He was having real problems with his guitar sound and what he was hearing in the monitor. He had asked for "more guitar" several times earlier then finally said something like, "The guitar in the monitor sounds like shit." It was corrected, finally, and sounded great the rest of the way.

Rated five stars for Hunter's effort, ignoring the techincal issues.

Subject: Timeless Genius
This is incredible. I think one should be cautious about throwing around the word "genius," but what else can we call Robert Hunter. This word wizard is a direct connection to a brilliant flowering of our culture darn near 50 years ago, and in this recording he sounds absolutely fresh and immediately now as he brings back the wonder of exploring the byways of the world and the heart and the mind. If there are artists like this these days I don't know them (other than people like Bob Dylan and Neil Young). And here he is in Allentown, PA two nights ago?
I was tempted to mark this 4 stars because I'm a little tired of audience tape sound with hooting louder than the music. But how could I? It sounds like you are there, witnessing a miracle of musical history and creativity.
